This holiday season we found the best sets for your beauty-loving pals and for you (you deserve it)!
Let’s start off with the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Vault. It’s priced at $65 but has 36 mini versions of their Soft Matte Lip Cream which would cost about $126.19 if you bought each mini separately. NYX generously includes two new shades Bangkok and Los Angeles, so you won’t be getting 36 readily available shades.
For a more varied holiday set, try the Too Faced Grand Hotel Café. It’s $49 and comes with 18 eyeshadows from three of their holiday scented palettes (Eggnog Latte, Gingerbread Coffee and Peppermint Mocha), two blushes, a bronzer, their holy grail Better Than Sex mascara and a guide for different looks you can achieve with the set.
If you’re looking for something that looks good and works well check out the Marc Jacobs Up All Night Five-Piece Petites Le Marc Lip Crème Collection. It’s five of their bestselling 10-hour wear lipsticks. The highlight of this kit is definitely the packaging — a bright pink vegan leather pouch with a luxurious black tassel — which could serve as a sleek addition to a holiday outfit and hold five killer lipsticks. It’s $42 for an $82 value set and already has 4.5 stars backing the price.
For more lip fiends, the Bite Beauty Best Bite Redux set is the way to go. It’s only $25 which is more than 50% off the actual $55 value. The colors vary from a dark wine plum to a fuschia pink, a warm tone and cool tone red. You won’t even need to gift wrap them because of the festive red tin they come in.
Chocolate lovers unite, Too Faced has blessed us with The Chocolate Shop set this holiday season. All of the 21 eyeshadows, blush and lipstick are infused with a rich cocoa powder, and that’s not where it ends. You get the Better Than Sex Mascara, Shadow Insurance eye primer, Luminizer highlighter and a blush with it. Like the other Too Faced set, included is a make up guide as well. It’s $58 which compared to the $312 value is a steal.
Shout out to Sephora for also having their Favorites samplers. They are Sephora curated samplers of your choice — lips, skin, lashes, you name it. The Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Lip & Liner is priced at $60 ($185 value) with mini travel size products and some full sized products, too. You get a variety of shades and finishes (mattes to glosses) and five sets of matching lip colors and liners from Benefit, Marc Jacobs, and Yves Saint Laurent to name a few.
To show someone that they are the highlight of your life consider the Becca Glow on the Go Set. Priced at $20 for two of their praised highlighters (one liquid and one powder), it’s hard not to be tempted.
With so many holiday sets debuting, treat yourself or show how much you love your friends by getting them some makeup to vamp up their look for the new year.
